I'm loving my recent purchases from PAA! The Sangre De Drago soap and matching aftershave is incredible. The scent strength on the AS is perfect. I can still catch a whiff as I'm driving home from the office. Excellent longevity. The scent is fantastic on both. Douglas has really created a masterpiece with this one. The oud and sandalwood work so well together and really has the "feel" of a high end fragrance. The soap is a wonderful performer and the lather is easy to make and plentiful with excellent slickness and a great post shave.

What are your favorites?

For me CaD takes the cake (out of what I've tried so far), but I'd be interested in checking out their take on 4711.

I really enjoy PAA soaps. They are quite easy to use IMO, and somehow remind me of a non-tallow version of B&M (a high compliment).

I might have to try Sangre DE Drago but the one I plan on buying first is the Crown King Rustle Ridge.
I have to agree with the guy that said CaD. Cavendish is also a great one. Those are the only ones I currently own. I'm looking into getting a couple more with the matching aftershave/cologne. Any recommendations?

Cad is very good. I like Club Guy. It's Clubman Pinaud on steroids.

Eh+ was very nice, however I must admit I have never raved about PAA performance. I don't think it cuts it with some others. But for selection of soaps you can't fault them.

CaD is the hands down winner for me. Also one of my favorite aftershave splashes. That being said I also quite like The Beach, Cavendish and one that is really nice that doesn't get mentioned too much is Gondolier
The soaps are fine, but the aftershave/cologne is what really shines. You just have to find a scent you like. I put them on at 7am and can pick them up driving home from work. The new Crown King soap formulation is one of my favorites and I wonder if his new PAA line is the same formula. I only have some of the older PAA/HTGAM formulations. Gondolier is one of his best scents IMO. If you like citrus and cedar then Ñ (Enye) is one you should check out. Al Fin is another fantastic aftershave/cologne he has too.

I love their lime scent the most.

Love the simplicity and tartness of that scent.

However, this was when the company was called howtogrowamoustache. Not sure they make it anymore.
